Baby Jo and I are nominating Team Wisconsin – Green Bay’s Climb Out of the Darkness for Postpartum Progress. I am a two-time survivor of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Did you know that 1 in 7 women faces maternal mental illness each year? Each year, I join Postpartum Progress to Climb Out of the Darkness in honor of these strong women while also remembering my own journey. Here is the official video for Climb Out of the Darkness 2015:
When C was about eight months old, I stumbled across a blog post written by a woman with postpartum anxiety. I realized that my inability to function was not just the “new normal” that I had begun to accept. I called for help right away and slowly climbed out of the pit of postpartum anxiety, postpartum depression and postpartum OCD. I may have been more prepared the second time around, but I was still frightened when the intrusive thoughts became debilitating during my pregnancy with Baby Jo. I look at my children and I am so proud of the battle we fought together. I’d love to win a $2,000 grant from Huggies Snug and Dry Ultra to go toward this amazing cause and help Postpartum Progress in its mission to help women, while increasing the awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in my own area.
Which community cause would you nominate in an #UltraHug selfie? Be sure to check out Huggies Snug and Dry Ultra Diapers from Walmart. The range of sizes fit children from newborn to 35 pounds and the Leak Lock® System provides for up to 12 hours of protection. The gap-free fit sits snugly around Baby Jo’s thighs, but she doesn’t think about that. What does she like? These diapers feature Mickey!
